Health & Wellness

It’s hard to imagine that two to three minutes could make such a difference, but whole body cryotherapy (WBC) has that effect. Following the rushing of blood through your system during your WBC experience, your body releases a flood of endorphins (similar to post exercise) leaving you feeling calm, energised, refreshed and ready to take on the day.

Reduces anxiety and depression

By acting on the autonomic nervous system and rebalancing the body, whole body cryotherapy counteracts the pressures of daily life, helping to fight stress, insomnia and headaches.

Reduce stress and refresh

Studies have shown that regular whole body cryotherapy sessions have lasting positive effects, including a decrease in the stress hormone cortisol. The less cortisol in your blood the more even tempered and the better you feel. Lower cortisol plus an influx of endorphins and serotonins (the happy hormones) equals an all-around better quality of life.

Increases energy levels

The extremely low temperatures in a whole body cryotherapy chamber enacts an amazing physiological response on the body. In order to keep an average temperature, the nervous system goes through a process called vasoconstriction – constricting of the arteries and blood vessels. This cuts down inflammation and more blood stays in the body’s core. That extra-oxygenated blood is then sent around the body increasing energy.
